Brief Answer:
Keloid

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query and photograph.
It is looking like keloid.
It happens due to hypertrophy of skin.
I treat such cases with silicon gel sheet.
These are available by trade names like hexilak, Scanil, vaniza etc.
You can use any of these.
Let me know if you have any other doubt.
Thank you

Three months

Detailed Answer:
Hello
It comes in tube form.
Just apply it like a cream over the scar area and leave it there for entire day.
It will take at least 3 months to show good response.
